    so, in my quest to narrow my collection a little, i've combined armada energon cybertron classics and universe into one big display. to help that cause, i'm trying to avoid duplicate molds unless i just love them...which brings me to the CD team...

    hot shot mold...ive got it as springer, and also plan on getting the roadbuster repaint, since i want him for my wreckers, and love dirge...but if i keep hotshot too, that's 3 of the same mold...

    scattorshot mold...i love dropshots colors, and think he's a cooler badguy then good guy, as far as the mold goes...

    and red alert...well, i'd have to buy the botcon megatron, which isnt a problem since i want it already...but in this case, i'd probably keep red alert for awhile, unless he gets repainted down the line...

    so, whatdya think i should do? leave the CD team in my display and just have those duplicate molds? or sell 2/3 of the team and keep the repaints...

    Well I'd probably sell, them, for the sake of my animated collection, but if you only wanted to get rid of one, I'd go with Hot Shot, two, I'd get rid of Hot Shot and Red Alert. But it really depends o which ones you like the most.

    I'd say there's a good chance that the CD Red Alert mold will also be used again in Universe.


    So my vote would be to sell them.

    I hope they do use it again. Then I could have all the CDF molds. I got Scattorshot, before I saw Dropshot, but Dropshot looks yucky so I'm glad I got that one. I'll be getting Dirge/Roadbuster when it hits stores too.

    Tough question since they are sweet molds. I never owned all 3 but I did sell my Hot Shot when I got Springer. I also bought Dropshot but that's to bolster my Classics D-cons display (since I only do TFA, Classics, Alts)

    One question to ask yourself is, what does that Red Alert mean to you? If he is part of the CD team then you should keep all 3 or sell all 3. That Megatron is awesome if you can get your hands on one.

    Are you gonna get that head Sculpt-bot is making to go with Roadbuster so he looks more 'G1' as seen here http://www.tfw2005.com/radicons-customs/attachment.php?do=fullview&attachmentid=11070

    OOOH...maybe i will get that head...

    and i still can't decide...i'm leaning towards getting rid of hot shot and scattorshot...and keeping red alert for now...though he needs a new name...since i've got the smaller red alert mold in my classics display as red alert...and if they announce a repaint of sunstreaker as red alert, then i can sell that mold (since i have 3 versions of it currently too...)

    so, whats a good name for the bigger red alert?

    With the way Hasbro is going with the Classics line they'll put one out as soon as you finish your repaint

    I'm a fan of the originals myself, so I would keep them. If you like the G1-ish updates... sell them off.

    My AEC shelves are nowhere near my Classics shelves, so they matter not to me.

    My AEC display has the latest version of each character, so my Cybertron Defense Team stands posed together. I have a plastic bin where all of the rest of the figures reside should I want to tinker with them.

    You should sell them. To me. Cheaply.

    ;) 

    Seriously though, what I'd do is just put them away. Pack them up. And think long and hard about what you want to do with them. Quick decisions suck, so, don't do it...just pack them up, and decide over a period of time if you like enough to keep, or if you'd rather the space for other things later, or whatever.
